I just tried to install Photoshop elements 3 form an original CD on my new build. On instructing the install to begin I get the message from AVG Resident Shield Alert:

Threat Detected
e:\Adobe Photoshop Elements\Setup.exe
Trojan horse Cryptic BAD
Detected on open

Prcess name: E\Setup.exe
Process ID: 5296

Is this real? Clicking 'Ignore' doesn't let me prceed (nothing happens). I scanned the CD with Malwarebytes and nothing came up.

Has anyone seen this before?

Lets' upload this file for a second opinion on what it actually is..
e:\Adobe Photoshop Elements\Setup.exe

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:
How to see hidden files in Windows

Please click this link-->Jotti

When the jotti page has finished loading, click the Browse button and navigate to the following file and click Submit.

Please post back the results of the scan in your next post.

If Jotti is busy, try the same at Virustotal: http://www.virustotal.com/
